Get to know Oriana!


TCTP: What was your favorite show you were a part of in high school?


OD: We did a production of 1984 during my senior year and it was the most memorable show I worked on because cast and crew was involved in all aspects of the show. It was great to be able to get a more hands on experience before going to college since it gave me an introduction to all aspects of putting up a production.


TCTP: Have you actually read Moby Dick?


OD: I had to read selected excerpts in high school, but have never read the book in its entirety.


TCTP: What is a piece of classical literature you would love to see turned into a musical?


OD: Herland – Charlotte Perkins Gilman (a fantastic piece of feminist sci-fi)


TCTP: Do you have a personal white whale? What is it? (Interpret how you wish.)


OD: I am forever on a quest to find that perfect work/life balance that will allow me to spend as much time with my cats in a blanket fort as humanly possible. Until then, I’m perpetually juggling ye olde day job with my artistic pursuits.


TCTP: What’s the most thrown together show you’ve ever done?


OD: It wasn’t thrown together per say, but it was the most chaotic show I’ve ever worked on while in college, and it will forever stand out to me as such: The Producers.
